If you love mid-century design, don't miss Modernism Week. In the 1950s and '60s, the architects in the Palm Springs area began focusing on simplicity in their building designs: clean lines, casual elegance and a whole lot of white stucco.

Many of these classy buildings still gleam against the desert's blue skies. It's a week of vintage chic fun, full of home tours, films, lectures, parties and, of course, martinis.
